The point is not to enforce a particular scientific orthodoxy, but to
require documentary makers to honestly portray orthodox ideas as
orthodox, heterodox ideas as heterodox, and generally to avoid
misrepresenting what they are told by the scientists the consult.  If
the scientists legitimately disagree, that's fine -- then they have
material for a documentary that is (in whole or in part) about the
disagreement.
